With Big Fat Sam’s contract expiring this summer, rumours are rife that West Ham’s owners David Sullivan and David Gold are keen to bring in a third “D Man” to complete the Holy Trinity. Step forward David Moyes.
Let’s be honest, we miss him. We all miss Moyesy. He was a nice friendly chap and we all felt a little sorry when things went a cropper for him over on the red half of Manchester.
Sure United were performing about as well as a blind man playing darts but they shouldn’t have done him like that. Not like that.
Just imagine it. You wake up in the morning, the sun is shining and you’re feeling rather sprightly. Things haven’t been going so well at work but to hell with it. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day and damn it you’re feeling good.
You skip down the stairs whistling dixie and scoop the newspaper from the letter box. You glance at the headline and… Whoopsy Daisy. You’re fired.
Fergie had hung around for what seemed to the non Manchester United fan as an eternity in hell and poor old Moyes only got 6 months. How is that right? How is that fair dammit’!
Well, Pundit isn’t having it. We want him back and here are ten reasons why.
10. The people’s manager
Having been sent to the stands last month for excessive abuse (always the best reason to go), Moyes hopped the barriers like jumping Jack Flash and next thing he was gobbling cheesey puffs with the fans. Absolutely brilliant Jeff.
9. He seems to be having seizures abroad
A few weeks back, the thought of a certain Real midfielder almost gave him a straight up heart attack.
Come home Dave. For the good of your health please come home.
8. He speaka da Spanish areal good
We’re kidding. It’s worse than Rooney’s acting.
7. He does a mean impression of Alan Partridge

6. He’s best mates with Ferg-ey
Quite simply the best interview of all time.
5. We want to see more of this story
4. He’s a proven trophy winner at the highest level
3. The passion, oh the passion
His celebrations are second to none. Certainly better than that one armed point thing that David Brent is trying over at Anfield.
2. He beat Barcelona
No really. He did.
1. He is genuinely a top class manager
As you may have noticed at this point, a lot of the above has been a bit tongue in cheek. However, putting the jokes aside, David Moyes has proven time and again that he is capable of leading at the top over a prolonged period of time.
Come home David. You’ve been gone for far too long.
